5G – From Vision to Reality

Björn Odenhammar, CTO at Ericsson for Global Customer Unit TeliaCompany

Björn Odenhammar Björn Odenhammar has an extensive experience from the Telecom industry. He works for Ericsson and have had multiple leading positions covering both Strategic Product Management and Sales roles. His main focus is to find new technologies that can create great business for the operators. The ongoing introduction of 5G is so exciting, since it enables brand new applications for both Consumer and especially Enterprise customers in the networks. Even more important, it holds the promise to help the evolution towards a more sustainable society.




Resilience of AI-driven Applications

Ravishankar K. Iyer, George and Ann Fisher Distinguished Professor of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Ravishankar K. Iyer The emerging innovations in computer science and engineering are likely to come from “AI-systems” that seamlessly augment human capabilities and optimally interact with other manmade and natural systems with a focus on seamless availability of dynamic decision-making capabilities. Applications, such as, autonomous vehicles, robotic management and control, high performance computing, all driven by advanced data-analytics and artificial intelligence algorithms, have spawned a level of complexity where traditional fault-tolerance methods cannot form the backbone for resilient system design. Driven by observations of operational failures of autonomous vehicles, surgical robots, and extreme-scale computing systems as examples, this talk will present directions of research that leverage probabilistic graphical models (PGMs) for building and validating a new generation of resilient and safety-critical applications.
